… to want to own oboe headphones just because they are called “oboe”?

You’d never see an oboe onstage at a rock concert, because they just aren’t that cool. So, are the WeSC Oboe Headphones a paradox? These phones are not only supreme in their audio quality, they also tip the scales of cool straight over. Maybe WeSC are trying to bring back the oboe, or maybe they just really love Peter & The Wolf, but one thing is clear: 30mm drivers and a lightweight, comfortable design will make any instrument sound a little bit cooler.

Not only that, but I went to the WeSC headphone page (what the heck does “We are the Superlative Conspiracy mean anyway?) and I see these are unisex headphones. And how often can you find that sort of thing, huh? I mean … HUH?!

(Yeah, I blogged about this before. But it was just time to do it again. You can deal, right?)

I don’t really care to own oboe shoes though. No matter their name. They just aren’t “me”.

And no way would you catch me in this oboe butterfly cocktail dress or an oboe bubble cocktail dress. I don’t drink cocktails, after all.


  1. Actually, I was going to wear the shoes and the chiffon dress to my next lesson, but now I’m thinking maybe not…

  2. Oh no, Tim! One oboe is okay, but you’d be combining three and that would simply be horrendous!

  3. …but if they were all in tune, maybe? No?

    Although maybe I should look into getting one of them-there pedicure thingies first…
